Farrah Abraham: I'm not a porn star, I'm a sex symbol (and a writer)

Farrah Abraham has gone from reality star to sex tape star to her latest career: author of erotic novels. But the former ‘Teen Mom’ – now 22  – said she is not looking to other writers for inspiration. Not even trailblazing porn-star-turned-best-selling-author Jenna Jameson.

“I have not read her work. I try not to read so many other different books talking about sex and fantasies and those things because I’m trying to do something in my own way," Abraham told FOX411. "I stay true to myself.”

“I really enjoy at this time of my life writing about sex," she added. "I think it’s because I’m 22, and kind of single. What better to express yourself in a positive way than writing.”

The last way Abraham chose to express herself, by having sex on camera with porn actor James Deen, earned the single mom intense criticism, as well as the dreaded label "porn star." But its a label Abraham rejects.

“I have friends who are in the adult entertainment industry, and that is something that they make their full income off of. That is what they dedicated their life to. And if that’s your choice that’s fine," she said. "Personally, making a sex tape, and that’s all I’ve ever done, that’s not being a porn star. I live a very different life than what adult entertainers live, so I can’t help what the public perceives.”

One label she will embrace? Sex symbol.

“I think I’m ok with being a sex symbol," she said. "I think moving on in my future and in my career that is something that I am proud of at the same time I’m using it as a positive rather than a negative, which is hard to deal with at times.”
